What Titans said following Week 8 win over Texans

The Tennessee Titans notched their fifth straight win on Sunday evening when they topped the Houston Texans, 17-10, which improves their record to 5-2.

While the passing attack was bad once again with rookie quarterback Malik Willis making his first career start, the defense and running back Derrick Henry stole the show.

Henry in particular tallied 219 yards and two scores, marking the fourth straight time he has totaled at least 200 yards and two scores against Houston.

“The difference between this league and our team is we got Derrick Henry,” head coach Mike Vrabel said to the players during his postgame speech.

The Titans aren’t just lucky to have Henry, though. Their defense has been outstanding and is the biggest reason why this team is 5-2 despite some absolutely gross performances on the offensive side of the ball.

Check out what Vrabel, Henry, Willis and other Titans had to say about the Week 8 win.
